A Companion to Feminist Philosophy

Including over fifty newly-commissioned survey articles, this outstanding Companion represents the first truly comprehensive guide to feminist philosophy.

The advent and development of feminist philosophy are traced and contextualized by the editors' introduction, followed by essays that reflect both conventional philosophical divisions as well as a number of topics absent from mainstream philosophy, and including sections of Feminist Perspectives on the Western Canonical Tradition, Theories of Subjectivity and Embodiment, Moral Theory, Social and Political Philosophy, Philosophy of Knowledge, Philosophy of Language, Aesthetics and Practical Concerns. A unique feature is the inclusion of essays tracing the emergence of feminist philosophy in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe. The single comprehensive bibliography provides a valuable guide to the burgeoning literature in the field.
